Queen Scooter the First

This is a short traditional Czech tale translated by Barbora Voráčová as part of her internship at the Scottish Storytelling Centre, who states:

‘I really like this fairy tale which my grandmother used to tell me. I have so many nice memories attached to it! I chose this story because it contains examples of the typical Czech sense of humour as well as riddles which children and adults love. Last but not least I like this tale because it shows that being clever is much better than just being pretty and waiting for a prince.’
